I spent one day in beautiful Blois. I took the train from Beaugency to Blois, and as soon as I arrived in the little town, I looked for the hotel to drop off my heavy suitcases. If you also have the opportunity to visit Blois, which is something I definitely recommend, you should check out this hotel. Needless to say, I loved my room on the first floor (which you can see from the photos here). I actually never had a room like this before and once I stepped in, I was in awe. I honestly didn’t want to close the door and leave the hotel for the day. But what can you do? C’est la vie!
How I spent my day and things to do in Blois:
Take the shuttle bus, which stops in front of the Royal Castle of Blois and in about 40 minutes you are going to reach the Royal Château de Chambord. Check the timetables for the time the last bus leaves for Blois. While you are in the Royal Château de Chambord, take your time. The castle and its surrounding are huge; therefore you need time to admire the exceptional architecture. There are also restaurants for a little relaxation. Once you get back to Blois, visit the Royal Chateau of Blois. From the Royal Chateau of Blois you can also have a panoramic view of the city (photos above). Plus, don’t forget to reserve a ticket for the festival of special effects which takes place in the courtyard and documents the history of the castle. During my visit in Loire Valley, I was going from one castle to another, which had me feeling like a little princess.♥
